Light Whole Wheat Bread

"Light in texture, color, taste, and calories when sliced thin, this bread makes good tuna, chicken, egg salad, cold meat, or peanut butter sandwiches."
Small Loaf (1 lb.)       Ingredients         Large loaf (1 1/2 lb.)
1 1/2 teaspoons          active dry yeast    2 1/4 teaspoons

[I made this the other night, to see if my bread machine still works. It does. It came out with a nice dark crusty crust, and good 'n chewy (more so than I expected given the "light" name).]
